After a fairly solid road performance last week, the Wildcats return to the Konza for their final non-conference test of the season. Lots of questions found answers Saturday, but this week has raised a few more. All there is for us, now, is to sit back and watch... and here's all the info you'll need.
The game: Kansas State (2-0, 0-0 Big 12, rv/rv) hosts the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs (1-1, 0-1 CUSA). The Wildcats lost to Louisiana Tech the very first time they met, a 31-28 setback in 1988, otherwise known as the Year 0 Before Snyder. In 2000 and 2001, the Cats absolutely crushed Tech by a combined score of 94-17 to take a 2-1 series lead. They've not met since.
Odds: The line opened with K-State as 8.5-point favorites, moved up to 12.5, and has since been slowly falling. The Wildcats are now a 9-point favorite. The over/under opened at 55, but has dropped to 50.
Kickoff: Saturday, September 19 at 2:00pm CT, Bill Snyder Family Stadium (50,000) in Manhattan, Kansas.
Tickets: Sold out, naturally. The secondary market has tickets for as low as $48, but they're singles. If you have a friend, $65 is the low mark; if you have plural friends, you're looking at $85 a pop and the average price for multiple tickets is $97 each. If you don't want to sit in the 400s, that average balloons to nearly $130 per.
Television: Fox Sports regional networks (FS Midwest, FS KC, etc) with Brendan Burke, Ben Leber!, and Christian Steckel.
Radio: K-State Sports Network, with Wyatt Thompson, Stan Weber, and Matt Walters; also available on Sirius 102/XM 200.
